Life has NO purpose
Now you may expect this thread to be one of those threads that detail the personal problems of a member and hope to extract a cure from their peers; but no, I am a happy, healthy individual, with goals and desires like all other positive people.
What I mean is that 'Life' has no puropose. (imho)
Life is just life. Complex carbon behaviour. No 'other side', no external influences' just atomic interaction and chemical reactions. So whats the point? Where does personal effectiveness matter. Does it matter? Well, yes. Experience is everything. Being effective squeezes more out of our short existence than what the masses generally get. Effectiveness increases good experiences.
This I suppose is akin to an Existentialist worldview. ie Nothing matters - 'being' is what is important.
Someone once said, without 'god', everything is possible, or words to that effect. What I translate this to be is by throwing off any old yokes we have, we can free ourselves from unnecessary burdens and stretch out our potential and personal effectiveness.(Remember, morality isnt a religious phenomena. In fact I would argue that religion is divisive and a-moral.)
Just a thought.
Does existentialism broaden your horizons?
